* ''[[WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi Puffy Ami Yumi]]''
** A bit of a subversion in that the show wasn't made in response to the band's popularity, but as an attempt to establish them as stars in the US. The group and the show were only moderately successful. In Japan, where Puffy are pop legends, the show is a more conventional example of this trope.

Part 1 is called "Barbie and the Rockers: Out of This World", while part 2 is called "Barbie and the Sensations: Rockin' Back to Earth".[[note]]However, they are technically still "Barbie and the Rockers" even in part 2.

Part of the appeal of this format for animation studios is that the inevitable music sequence(s) always rely on StockFootage, which saves on animation costs. Since [[Creator/{{Filmation}} Filmation]] did a lot of these, they would even retrace the instrument-playing animation from a previous series, using the new characters.

* "Music/{{KISS}} Saves Christmas" may have been inspired by an actual Creator/HannaBarbera telefilm, ''KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park'', released at the band's height of popularity. In it, the band battles a CircusOfFear with? [[ThePowerOfRock Guess]]. They were also rock-based superheroes in their short-lived comic book.
